not sure if you read these, but can you rec any Tomlinshaw or even Stylinshaw fics??

(Last update on September 3rd 2017)

Of course I have to start with 4 sunsetmog fics, aka the best tomlinshaw fics ever (if you can read all the kinks tho) :

- I Had Rather Hear My Dog Bark At A Crow : The first time Louis Tomlinson kisses him, Nick is three sheets to the wind, wearing a pirate hat, and so fucking tired of Louis being a complete and utter knobhead that he’s spent the last ten minutes snapping at him. The kiss takes him rather by surprise, all things considered. Or: Nick and Louis don’t like each other, not even a little bit, not even at all. (122k)

- A Waltz For A Night : (…) Louis finds someone who likes every bit of him, and who likes the same things he does. He just hadn’t expected that person to be Nick Grimshaw. (26k)

- Not Your Fault But Mine : No, this year was not going better than last year, because last year he was with his friends, and everything was okay, and it wasn’t the case that every single last thing was crap. Last year he wasn’t the stupid sixth former who’d failed his AS levels and had had to move stupid schools to do them again.In which the only good thing in Louis’s life was the person he talked to on Tumblr every night. (33k)

- We Used To Wait  : The BBC Breaking News Twitter just says, One Direction star Louis Tomlinson rushed to hospital after M25 car crash.or: Louis has an accident, but nobody even knows he and Nick are going out. (56k)

then :

- Loose lips sink ship all the damn time (not this time) , by MediaWhore : The one where Louis is outed via a sex tape he made before the X-Factor and Nick can’t resist flying to America to give him a shoulder to cry on. Told through flashbacks, this is a story of getting together and getting back together. (40k)

- set the pace , by @flimsi​​ : It’s not always easy, but sometimes it’s harder than it has to be. –University meets Radio 1 AU  “Do you think,” Nick says, “that we can keep this between us?” He gestures between himself and Louis and gives Louis a crooked smile like this is all explanatory, and Louis’ stomach twists uncomfortably.  “What,” he retorts, raising his brows, “that we shagged? Or that you are an awful snorer?” (34k)

- But it’s better of you do, by aliferuined : Louis definitely does not care about Nick’s opinion of him. And Nick definitely is not obsessed with Louis. (10k)

- Stitch Me Up  , by @whitechimes : It is eight minutes to the start of the Dunhill show and Nick has fucking gone and ripped the bloody zipper on his trousers. or Nick goes back to Louis’ hotel room after a stressful show. (3.7k)

- missing you is a slow burn, by @clairdeloune : “Maybe we should talk,” he offers quietly, even though he already knows what the answer will be. So when Louis frantically shakes his head and tries to kiss him again, he takes his face in his hands and strokes his cheek with his thumb, asks, “What do you want, love?”Louis doesn’t look him in the eye when he whispers, “You.”So Nick gives him just that. (16k)

- I Could Stand You One More Night, by @Hllangel : (…) Louis and Nick have been fucking for ages, but it’s definitely not a thing. They don’t even like each other. (24k)

- be my one and only? (aubergine emoji) , by @pigandbruce : Nick and Louis aren’t in a relationship. Definitely not. (And specifically not if Harry asks). (9k)

- Been a Long Time Since Before I’ve Been Touched      , by @accidentalambivalence : Louis nuzzles up under Nick’s jaw, pressing a kiss there, trailing his lips up to brush over Nick’s earlobe. “Tonight?” he whispers, so soft.Nick sinks his fingers into the hair at the back of Louis’ head, scritching his fingers against Louis’ scalp. He hums, brushing a kiss to Louis’ temple. “All right.” He knows that Louis is talking about the thing that they do now and again, not a game but not something they’ve given proper name to either. He always says yes when Louis asks; he loves it, too. (5k)

- we are not alone in the dark with our demons  by alison : It’s a Wednesday when Nick leaves. One too many questions about his feelings for Harry Styles, one too many jokes, one too many laughs. He leaves because he can’t anymore, can’t pretend that’s all it is: a joke. He can’t play along anymore, so he walks out of the studio and gets in his car and drives, the destination not seeming important in this moment. The last person he would expect to find him is Louis.  (32k)

- lost my senses, i’m defenceless, by @clairdeloune : “You told Nick Grimshaw what?” Louis asks calmly.  He can be so calm. He’s the best at being calm, no matter what Liam says. He can match Harry’s calm with his own calm, won’t give him the satisfaction of seeing Louis freak out, no way.“I told him you’d get papped wearing something from his collection,” Harry repeats and there’s so much fucking glee in his voice, like he’s stupidly proud of coming up with that idea. (10k)

- i’ll follow you, follow you home      by  annemari  : Nick should be prepared for this. He absolutely should be prepared for this, is sure he’s even thought about this moment before. But he didn’t sleep that well, and it’s a Friday, and he dashed home after the show this morning because Louis said, “Just call me, Nick.” Said he’d be waiting up, and he didn’t care it was almost three in the morning in LA.  So, yeah. Nick isn’t prepared for Harry to answer Louis’s phone. The one where Nick and Louis are in a secret relationship, Louis gets hurt on tour, and they both realise they have some things they need to figure out. (46k)

- it’s a beautiful night (we’re looking for something dumb to do), by carissima : In which Nick ends up in Vegas for Harry’s half-birthday and leaves with a famous popstar husband in tow. (12k)

- Give me touch , by @conscious–ramblings: Nick Is slightly obsessed with watching a pretty northern twink wank on camera for hundreds of men. Harry is slightly obsessed with setting Nick up with his friend Louis.Louis might also have a slight obsession with one of the men that watches him wank, but he’d never admit it if you asked. (3k)

- I’m loving angels instead, by @babygotstyles​ : Nick blinks again, wondering just how drained of caffeine he is and how badly he needs it or if he is just still sleeping and dreaming because unless his eyes are seriously messing with him, the man in front of him, still panting, curled up, and very naked, also has a pair of white, feathery wings attached to his back, just below his shoulder blades.When Nick is about to get into work, he is late and it’s not his fault. When an angel shows up in front of you, you are allowed to be late. And angels, well angels can bring trouble. (14k)

nothing is more fantastic. nothing is more tragic., by  alison  : after the breakfast show and after one direction, nick and louis find themselves in the same place at the same time.the place is Paris. (20k)

 - An ocean between us, by alison : Louis is in L.A. for the VMAs and gets a text from Nick, the last person he’d expect to be texting him. Insults turn to compliments, which turn to flirtation, which turns to sexiness. (16k)

War of words

Following Game 3 Sunday night in Calgary, Kevin Bieksa was asked if Flames forward Michael Ferland is under the skin of the Vancouver Canucks.

“Who suggested that? Them?” smirked Bieksa. “I think he’s pretty irrelevant so far.”

Through three games Ferland has one assist, 18 hits and 19 penalty minutes. Irrelevant may not have been the best word to use as Ferland has helped with Calgary’s grit, but in terms of being a player Vancouver is focusing on, Bieksa nailed it – he’s irrelevant.

Ironically, Bieksa may actually be the one under the skin of the Flames.

The photo above is of a sticker that was placed on the door of the Flames media production room near the Canucks dressing room at the Scotiabank Saddledome. A cameraman noticed it first, he told a photographer, who told me. And here we are.

No one knows who put the sticker there or when, but it more than represents everything right and wrong with this series so far.

The trash-talking element of it is golden, there’s no arguing that. Clearly this presumed Flames fan feels Ferland is very relevant and he’s making an impact, and his voice has been heard.

The photo chosen to taunt the Canucks is where things go sideways. A poor picture choice indeed as Ferland is catching Luca Sbisa with a shoulder, sending him head-first into the boards. It was charging or boarding or aggravated assault (kidding), they called it a clean body check.

Moving on.

Neither Bieksa and Sbisa had anything to say when I showed them the photo, but you better believe this bulletin board material will be in the back of their minds during Game 4 Tuesday night.

The message out of the Canucks room after practice Monday was that they’re focused on getting away from the post-whistle battles and instead playing their game. Whether or not they can execute their game plan and take Game 4 remains to be seen, but if the nastiness of this series downgrades to feistiness, it’s a dream series come true.

Facing a team in the playoffs has the potential to create a new rivalry or spark an existing one and that’s exactly what’s happening here.

The Canucks and Flames haven’t played meaningful hockey against each other in years and they’re more than making up for it so far. And we’re not even halfway through the series, should the full seven games be needed.

It’s too early in the series to be riding high on anything; fitting that today of all days someone was a little too high on Ferland and the Flames.

Stay classy everyone.

My next set of coffee shop goblins for Goblin Week.

Cappuccino goblins are extremely light, fluffy creatures with a skittish and easily distracted nature. Cappuccino goblins like to start things, but rarely finish them. They are known to leave half-constructed cup forts around the shop for baristas to clean up (or, if the managers aren’t watching, finish for the fuzzy gobs.)

Cappuccinos also like to give “helpful suggestions” to customers and baristas alike, but their lack of attention span means a tip on good cheesecake is likely to jump into a suggestion on how to finish the customer’s screenplay at a moment’s notice. This is common even if the customer is not writing a screenplay, and some conversations have suggested that the goblins only have a vague idea of what a “screenplay” is.

However, do not let their cream-puff appearance deceive you. Cappuccinos have a hidden bitter streak much like their Espresso cousins. It’s not uncommon for their “suggestions” to take on a passive aggressive or insulting tone, particularly if they suspect the suggestee of dismantling one of their forts.

Beer-Candied Bacon

1 lb thick-cut, high quality bacon
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup + 2 Tbsp beer (Fort Collins Brewery’s Black Sheep, Black IPA)

Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine brown sugar and beer in a small bowl, whisking well to form a thin syrup. Set aside.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place a wire cooling rack on top. Place the pieces of bacon on top of the rack, overlapping if necessary. Place in oven and cook for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and brush one side of the bacon with the beer syrup. Flip, and coat the other side with the syrup as well. Return to oven and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and repeat process another time or two more, until bacon is crispy and browned, and you’ve used all the glaze.
Cool on wire rack for at least 1 hour before serving.
